Lagos STreet Art
Adventure Hunt is a new way to enjoy a walk and have some fun in the Lagos sun. Only 20€ per group, including 1 free T-shirt.
The hunt starts in the centre of the old town and ends at the LAC building near the marina. LAC (Laboratório de Actividades Criativas) is a non-profit cultural association that promotes the work of urban artists through its annual ARTURb project where artists ‘in-residency’ are invited to create murals on buildings across the city.
There are 19 clues to solve in total, and there is no time limit, so you can spend as long as you like admiring the murals. The route goes through the old town and along the waterfront, so you’ll find plenty of places to stop for a drink or a bite to eat along the way.
The route is around 3km and is mostly level but many of the streets are cobbled and there are some steps to navigate. Allow around 3 hours at a relaxed place to complete.
The clues are mostly visual and so are suitable for anyone over the age of 8. To ensure that everyone is actively involved, a group size of 2-4 persons is recommended. If your group is larger, we suggest dividing into two different groups.
The Adventure Hunt App helps you navigate between puzzles without simply asking you to follow a dot on a map. Hints can be used if you need assistance solving any of the puzzles. The App is available on both Android and iPhone.
Lagos Street Art Adventure Hunt includes a T-Shirt. If you would like more than 1 T-shirt then select the total desired number at checkout.

Lagos STreet Art FAQ
Is Adventure Hunt Lagos an escape room?
Adventure Hunt Lagos is not an escape room but it is a fun experience with similar challenges and is enjoyable for people who enjoy escape rooms. Everything takes place outside, at your own pace – there is no race against the clock. In fact, we encourage people to take a break for a drink or something to eat and enjoy the lovely surrounding that the Adventure Hunt is set in.
The real similarity is that the puzzles require a degree of teamwork and lateral thinking.
Is Adventure Hunt a walking tour of Lagos?
The Adventure Hunt in Lagos takes you on some interesting streets in the old town and near the city walls. It shows you some places that you were possibly not aware of. However, it is not a replacement for a historical or guided walk as the focus is on having fun rather than learning.
Is This New Lagos escape room experience suitable for families?
Yes, Adventure Hunt is great for families. Choose the Family option when you make your booking if you have children under the age of 8-12.
are the clues complicated?
This is a really difficult question! What we can say is that out of the 10 initial test groups no single clue was found to be difficult by all groups. Every group did find a couple to be quite challenging, but it was almost always different clues from the other groups.
So we can assure you that you are not faced with any impossible puzzles. If you have enjoyed an escape room or other outdoor puzzle game, then choose the advanced route which has 6 more clues and slightly more cryptic wording. If you are a family group then you should choose the family option. If unsure, choose the standard route.
How do I win?
Having fun is winning so there is no need to be too focused on the score. That said, Adventure Hunt has a scoring system, with each clue offering a maximum of 20 points. Collect as many points as you do your Adventure Hunt and compete with friends and other groups.
Can we compete against another group?
You can keep track of how your other groups are doing on our live scores website. We encourage a 10-minute break between groups.
Please contact us if you have multiple groups. We can put up a specific configuration so that all of your groups can start on separate clues at the same time.

Adventure Hunt was featured in the June edition of Tomorrow magazine. Follow this link to read the article.
Tomorrow magazine is one of the largest English publications in the Algarve.
Lagos is famous for its stunning beaches with beautiful rocky formations and steep cliffs. The superb beauty of this charming city has no equal in the Algarve.
Lacóbriga, the city’s original name, was founded in 2000 b.c. by a tribe called cónios which were the first inhabitants of the Algarve and Baixo Alentejo (lower area of Alentejo). The city would later be disputed by Carthaginians, Romans, Moors and Barbarians, being only conquered by the Christians in the 13th century. Due to its geographical location and economic importance Lagos became a pillar of the Portuguese Discoveries in the 15th century and in 1577 it was awarded the statute of city and was named the capital of the Algarve by King Dom Sebastião.
With its beautiful churches and a fortress, a busy marina, an interesting zoo and gorgeous nature, Lagos is the perfect destination for the whole family, having something to offer to groups of all types and ages.
